Beer and sports go hand in hand – they really always have. Like anything in life, prices seem to always be going up, up, up. Beer prices are certainly no exception. We at LWOS have followed a site called SaveOnBrew.com for some time. Periodically they put out some really great insight into beer industry as it relates directly to sports. Back in January we ran an infographic on “Beer Consumption and the Superbowl“. The article was wildly successful, as we had many “thank-you” notes sent across my desk…errr, laptop.
Today, we bring hockey fans an interesting look at beer prices from around the NHL’s arenas. There are certainly some surprises, particularly with the high and low. It was interesting to see how SaveOnBrew examined the cost fans of each team would have to pay at their respective arenas to “Fill the Cup” (Stanley Cup) with beer – nice idea!
Note that all prices have been equalized into a price per 12 ounces. That way arenas that sell 20 ounce beers (ie Bell Centre) are not been penalized, and we have a fair apples to apples (lager to lager) comparison. All prices have also been normalized to US Dollars and are at a BEFORE TAX amount.
So, without further ado, I give you the beer prices from around the NHL. Before you take a look, please remember to follow us on Twitter – @LastWordOnSport. If interested, follow our hockey department – @LastWordOnNHL, @LastWordBKerr and @BigMick99.
